3.96/5 rDev -7.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: dark burnt brown head forms on the pour. About a half a finger then dissipates to the edges of the glass. Pours pitch black with above average thickness.
Smell: Bright licorice sweet front to this brew. Malt and barley hit on the body of the beer. Sweet molasses adds to the brightness of this brew. Oatmeal hits on the body as well as the bourbon accents are light.
Taste: The sweetness theme continues here. A smooth front transitions into an bright oatmeal and dark chocolate. Nice hoppy accents in the body give it a unique twist. The barrel accents are light, I could use more of a presence. A roasted malt back end pleasantly bites and sticks on the palette long after drinking.
Mouthfeel: Clean, the body might be a little light for an RIS but nothing to get upset about.
Overall: I've liked all the Hoppin' Frog Stouts I've had so far. I expected a little more out of this one being the barrel aged version but it is still a very good beer.

4.23/5 rDev -1.6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance is almost pitch black with a half finger of tan head. The nose has roasted notes, but also some sherry to it. This offering is full-bodied, but not as overwhelming as D.O.R.I.S., which I had over a year ago.
The roasted bitterness grows on the finish and there is also a touch of bourbon present. All the flavors seem to blend together nicely.
Serving type: on-tap
